The Typewriter Database 1976 Olivetti Studio 46 Serial # 2253281 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1976 Olivetti Studio 46 Serial # 2253281 This semi-standard typewriter is an interesting mix of futuristic and old elements. For starters, it is a mechanical typewriter, which makes it and old thing. But then it has that "futuristic" design and font, which gives the impression of being looking at an old computer.

A really fast machine, it was sold to me by the former assembly chief of the Olivetti plant in Barcelona after it was abandoned at his workshop for several years after its original owner never went to get it it back.

Again, Spanish Olivettis have a different numbering, so I can only guess the year of manufacture, which is somewhere in the 70´s.

--- UPDATE ---

Uploaded new photos because the older ones were dark, gloomy and, if you want, bad. A good chance to improve things, since this typewriter has come back home from my sister´s office after a year of service there.

As a final note, this thing has an extremely weird touch. It´s not exactly bad, but it´s strange, bizarre, quirky...

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
